Dr. Tiffany Anderson; Superintendent, Topeka, Kansas. Leadership and Equity: Accountability in Action. 'We often hear about school districts that struggle with high poverty, low test scores and budget problems. But one district has faced all of these and achieved remarkable results. In just over three years, Superintendent Tiffany Anderson...has lead a dramatic turnaround in one of the worst-performing systems in Missouri.'

'To be truly prepared to do the work called for in the 21st century, whether in a STEM field or in the work of everday life, students must be able to reason about the world around them. The [Core Standards in Mathematics] call for understanding and reasoning to be a part of each child's mathematical education. We cannot afford to miss such an opportunity.'
